Overview

Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother's life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she's somehow responsible for her mom's death, Riley is desperate to see her mother's elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.

When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn't get worse––that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley's falling hard for Ian.

Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she's not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, the spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she'll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

This book is fantastic, I got really attached. The writing was great and I couldn't even force myself to put it down! This book made me smile, laugh, and nearly cry. Brilliant character development, and the horror aspect was pretty scary. I cannot wait to read the second book! :)

The Deepest Cut is an amazingly beautiful love story. J.A Templeton's writing is truly beautiful. The tenderness Templeton shows between Riley and Ian made my heart fall in love with them. Riley and Ian's love had me crying, hoping, and longing that they would find a way to be together. Templeton has a gift for writing heart-melting love. Riley and Ian broke my heart with their love that could never be. Riley lost her mother in a car crash, and Riley feels responsible for her mom's death. The guilt is too much for Riley to carry, so she finds a way to let the pain out. But the way Riley has chosen to deal with pain is a secret that she has to hide. When Riley moves to Scotland, it's kind of hard to hide this secret from a ghost, but Ian is not your average creepy ghost. Ian's nineteen, gorgeous, and has been cursed to the lands where Riley now lives. Riley and Ian find strength in each other. Riley never thought that her best friend and the love of her life would be a ghost. And because of her gift, she knows she the only one that can end Ian's curse and he finally crosses over. This will become Riley's deepest pain, letting go of a love she knows she will never have again. Riley and Ian's love will make you feel every tender moment between them. Every heart break, but also the power of love that can heal the deepest cut. I highly recommend The Deepest Cut as a must read and I love the beautiful cover.

Riley loses her mother and now sees ghosts but not the ghost of her mother. Riley has another problem se cuts herfelf when shes upset. Her father moves the family to scotland and she meets Ian a ghost from the 1780'S. Ian comes wiyh baggage in the form of a crajzy ghost who killed and cursed Ian. Love and loss is a perfect paranormal romance combo.
